Info to knowInfo to Know – Welcoming You

As British Columbians are now welcome to roam B.C. freely (more on Phase 3), Boundary Country is eager to invite visitors from other parts of our province to safely enjoy everything our region has to offer.

Check out our website to learn more about the experiences you can plan for. Our local Visitor Centres will have the latest information on what is open. See below.

Health & SafetyHealth & Safety

For the health & safety of both residents and visitors, we need your support to ensure a safe experience. The businesses operating in our region are guided by provincial and WorkSafeBC health & safety regulations, plus many are implementing further safety measures. This includes physical distancing, sanitization of hands, and wearing a non-medical mask when physical distancing can’t be guaranteed.

Changing conditionsChanging Conditions

The current travel conditions and regulations are very fluid at the moment, and as a result, can change fairly quickly. Updates will be monitored by the Similkameen Valley and our businesses/business partners but we encourage potential visitors to stay as up-to-date as possible when planning a trip. Also, visitors are recommended to become acquainted with cancellation policies of bookable experiences during this time as there is no uniform standard during this time.

On Wednesday, June 24th, it was announced that BC was moving into Phase 3 of the BC Restart Plan. The highlight of Phase 3 is the allowance of residents of BC to travel freely to other parts. To ensure safe travel for visitors and residents, anyone travelling within BC is encouraged to practice foundational rules when travelling.

These rules include:

  • Physical distancing
  • Staying home when sick
  • Hand hygiene
  • Wearing masks when necessary or when physical distancing isn’t possible
  • Other protective measures
